Wondering if it’s possible or if anyone has done it?

I lost my favorite dog ever a little over a year ago and was thinking of engraving her name (Lucy) on it as a little memento.

Thanks!
Sorry to hear about Lucy.

Sometimes a local maker space, or perhaps a machine shop may have a small cnc mill that can do that.

I did a search on custom engraving and a number of small local places showed up. Often times you can contact them for little things like this that they don't necessarily list.

Or try Etsy, I expect there may be a small shop on there that could help you out!

Good luck!

You might want to check out/contact Synergy Guitars. They seem to sell some custom truss rod covers for PRS guitars. Might be what you are after.

(Didn't see the Silver Sky on their website but I didn't do a deep dive.)

Great idea! Places like Tap Plastics and engraving kiosks at the mall could almost certainly do it. Note that engraving plastic is different from metal, so a metal engraver may not have the right equipment.

The SS truss cover is metal, not plastic.

As alantig said “find a local trophy shop“. Over the years I’ve had at least 3 truss rod covers custom engraved at our local shop. And having a second cover is a good idea. They were a little skittish at first as they didn’t want to mess it up. I told them they could practice on the back to center the engraving and check for the depth of the cut. I was really happy with the ones they did for me.

Reviving my original thread as I’ve had a chance to finally do this!

My beloved Lucy that I still miss every day:

And since I bought a second Silver Sky, my current dog Penny:
